The Nudies Bloom by NUDESTIX is a ‘multi-masker’ that makes for the perfect glow-me-up ($43). A dual-ended design with a colour block on one end and a top-quality makeup brush on the other, its dewy finish brightens the skin and brings a natural glow all-over.

The Cooling Water Jelly Tint Lip + Cheek Blush Stain is the newest addition to the MILK Makeup line up, a playful sheer stick stain for the lips and cheek, now available online ($33). In 4 fun and bright colours, it combines the cooling effect of seaweed and aloe with a fun and unexpected bouncy jelly-like texture, treating lips and cheeks to a sheer, buildable and long-lasting watercolour tint that works on a wide spectrum of skin tones. 

The Glossier Cloud Paint is arguably the most seamless cheek colour ($22). Enjoyable to simply dab on and easy to wear, this gel cream is just sheer enough to look like a lover brought us this colour.

The Pixi Beauty Sheer Cheek Gel instantly brightens up the complexion ($14). This gel blush is super-sheer, creating a natural looking flush, lasting longer than just a crush. 

In a range of super-saturated shades, start an affair with the Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink ($11). The Liquid Lipstick offers a flawless matte finish, also brightening up the cheeks with just a dab.
